Pyrroloquinoline Quinone (PQQ): A novel approach to neuroprotection
By Kelly C. Heim, Ph.D.
Pyrroloquinoline quinone (PQQ) is a B vitamin-like cofactor that occurs naturally in plant foods and in most organs and tissues. Over fifteen years of research has underscored the unique properties of PQQ in maintaining neuronal health. The diverse cellular mechanisms of PQQ distinguish this powerful quinone antioxidant from other neuroprotective dietary supplements.
